We are inviting all Parents, RE Catechists, EDGE Leaders & L.I.G.H.T. Leaders to join us for a special presentation, “Parenting Faith in a Social Media World.” Our presenter will be Bill Johnson, Campus Minister & Outreach Coordinator for Marmion Academy. As the primary teachers of our faith to our children, we know how difficult it is to reach them sometimes with all of the media distractions. And it is also tough with all of the hectic schedules parents follow every day. Our world tells our children one thing, but it isn’t what Christ wants for them. Nor is it what we want for them. So come & listen to Bill. Our teens love him!
Please join us on Monday, April 9th at 7-8PM in the Church. Bill is also a Deacon at St. Patrick’s Church in St. Charles and has done many presentations here for our teens, Jr. High & High School, as well as leading the 5th grade retreat in April.
Christ Renews His Parish, or CRHP, is a program designed to help us renew our Christian faith by bringing members of the Our Lady of Mercy community together in Christ.
It is a break from your busy schedule of personal, business and family obligations so that you can refresh yourself spiritually and renew your heart. You will be meeting with and listening to the experiences of other men or women from our Parish in an informal and relaxed environment of reflection, fellowship and fun.
Men’s Weekend: March 3-4, 2018 Women’s Weekend: March 17-18, 2018 Register before February 28
The emphasis during the weekend is on small group interaction. Everyone is free to share as much or as little as they feel comfortable. Discussion and sharing is enjoyed by all participants.
After the weekend, the opportunity to continue faith formation exists with an option to continue to meet and grow as a spiritual community and eventually share what you’ve experienced with others.

You and I are on a lifelong journey of conversion and love. And what better way to fellowship together and dig deeper into Jesus’ love for us than to pore through Bishop Barron’s film and study program called “Conversion” where he illuminates six biblical stories of conversion, demonstrating how six ordinary people, just like you and me, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through Him.
10/19, 10/26, 11/2, 11/16, 11/30, 12/7, and 12/14/17.
Mark your calendars and be in prayer for the “Bible Basics 101: Introduction to the Bible as fertile ground for Personal & Group Study” scheduled for Thursday October 12th at 7pm in Room 204 at the PLC.
